Posted: Jan 03, 2022
The Lacombe and District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the successful wrap up of the 2021 Passport to Christmas program.
Passport to Christmas is a local shopping program that runs 6 weeks leading up to the Christmas holidays- Sponsored by Sunny 94, Echo Lacombe and Strand 360.
For each $10 spent at one of the 75 participating businesses, the customers collected stamps for their Passport. Each business had a dropbox where completed passports were submitted. The prize for the lucky winners are “Lacombe Bucks”, which can be spent at the participating businesses – 6 of which were located in Bentley.
This year the program ran November 12th through December 24th. The Grand Prize draw took place LIVE on Sunny 94 on December 31st, 2021. The 1st place prize is $3500 in Lacombe Bucks, two 2nd place prizes of $1,000 Lacombe Bucks and two 3rd place prizes of $750 Lacombe Bucks.
The prize for a partially completed passport was $500 Lacombe Bucks.
This program continues to grow each year and we are excited to announce that 11,303 passports were turned in during this year’s program, resulting in local sales of $3,390,900. Additionally, there were 10 early bird draws of $100 Lacombe Bucks, drawn at locations across Lacombe and Bentley.
We are pleased to report that the Passport to Christmas recognizes that over $3.3m was spent locally in this 6 week period, with passports being submitted by people from Edmonton, Calgary and across Alberta.
